Perimeter presents at CAP16 - Advancing Diagnostic Medicine
Perimeter Medical Imaging, Inc., a developer of real time optical imaging systems for intraoperative tissue assessment, was invited to speak at CAP16. Wide-Field Optical Coherence Tomography (WF-OCT): A Tool for Rapid Assessment of Ex vivo Subsurface Tissue Structures, and The Potential of Wide-Field Optical Coherence Tomography (WF-OCT) Imaging as a Grossing Tool in your Practice, were two clinically focused presentations given at the IVM Pavilion in the Exhibit Hall.
In vivo microscopy (IVM) is a new field where microscopic images are obtained in real time. These technologies, including Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), currently use light and can rapidly produce images in 2D or 3D.
